"I am so grateful for the incredible support my campaign has received since I announced my reelection bid. Arizonans want an effective conservative fighter in Congress, and with support like this, I feel more confident than ever that I'll be able to carry on my efforts to reform Washington and get government under control."
Rep. Quayle was recently ranked as the most conservative member of the House by the National Journal -- far ahead of Schweikert, who ranked 66. He was also ranked higher than Schweikert by the Club For Growth, a limited-government organization advocating reductions in spending and tax rates.
The newly drawn CD 6 holds about 67 percent of Quayle's constituents, but only about 30 percent of Schweikert's current district. More than 60 percent of Schweikert's current constituents are now in newly drawn CD 9.
"Perhaps Dave's fundraising would pick up if he reconsidered his decision to abandon 60 percent of his current constitutents," said Quayle spokesman Jay Heiler.
Congressman Quayle has $972,301 cash-on-hand to fund his reelection bid--also the most of any Republican running for the House of Representatives in Arizona.
